Johnny Depp Just Might Be Quitting Acting

Say it ain't so!

In an interview with BBC News on Monday, Johnny Depp said that his latest film, "The Lone Ranger," could very well be one of his last.

Depp said there are "quieter" things he would like to do aside from acting.

"At a certain point, you start thinking, and when you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year, for example, and you realize that you've said written words more than you've actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking of that as a kind of insane option for a human being," Depp said.

While he might not quit immediately, Depp said it is "probably not too far away."

And this isn't the first time Depp has mentioned retirement (tear).

In his June interview with Rolling Stone, he said that while he thinks of retiring every day, he's not sure he can actually relax.

"Relax, I can't do. My brain, on idle, is a bad thing. I just get weird. I mean, not weird. I get, I get antsy," he said.

Well lucky for us, he has a booked-solid schedule, including a role in "Into the Woods," an "Alice in Wonderland" sequel and, rumor has it, the fifth installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean."

So even if you are ready to say goodbye, we're not ready to let go just yet, Johnny.
